Sold! Mid-century Toronto gem goes for $2 million
Toronto doesn't have much mid-century Modern architecture that remains in its former glory, but if you keep an eye out, you'll spot plenty of signs of its former existence. This house at 92 Three Valleys Dr. in Don Mills is an excellent example of its legacy in the city.
While the interior has been thoroughly updated, you can still see Modern design sensibilities across the house, from the car port to the sloped ceiling in the living room. The kitchen stools are also a nice nod to the period when the house was built.
Beyond the architectural details, this house has a few other noteworthy features that helped it to sell for over $2 million. One of these is the outdoor space. Large lots were one of the main draws of suburban living in the 1950s and 60s, which has been made good use of here.
Here you get a large covered terrace, a patio area, and a lawn. That's almost uncanny these days. The Walk Score might be the pits, but for people who are happy to drive everywhere, this might qualify as a dream home.
Design and space. This home is dramatic enough to feel special but not so over-the-top that it doesn't feel livable. And lots this size cost a pretty penny pretty much everywhere in Toronto.
I like this one a lot. For someone who cares about architecture and who doesn't need to commute downtown every day, it's a pretty remarkable find.
